 Annual Summary

The Annual Water Report is prepared in accordance with Section 11 of Ontario Regulation 170/03 under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

 Hydrant Flushing

Please be notified that Ontario Clean Water Agency is required to carry out maintenance programs, flushing and testing of fire hydrants throughout the municipal water distribution systems. The work is required twice annually and is scheduled for both spring and fall. The work may cause some discoloration in the water; however the effect should be minimal. If a colored water problem is encountered in your water service line, flushing the service by letting the water run for a period of time should cure the problem.
